knit mix

pillars socken


this is a pretty sock, in all its simplicity. i totally forgot about this sock, after i was in such a hurry to *knit faster* so i could weigh the leftovers. according to the scale, i do have enough to knit the mate. but, once i knew this, i kinda forgot about the sock altogether.

this pattern is called pillars and is a free download on ravelry.


since i had the pattern book, and yarn, i went ahead and cast for loppem yesterday. the yarn i am using is lang's silk dream ... and it is a dream to knit with. it feels like butter!

before i cast on, i read all the threads i could find in ravelry on this cardigan, and i printed out the errata.

it's kinda slow going because it's all knit in one piece. some people prefer this method as they don't like finishing or seaming. i, on the other hand, don't mind that at all, and like to see 1/2 a back knitted in one evening.

this new love does not mean i have forgotten fonn. i actually just started the second sleeve ...


... and am awaiting a replacement set of size 7 harmony dpns from knitpicks, as one of my needles split down the center of the tip. when i finish this sleeve, the fun of the yoke begins!

a knitter's prayers ...
please postman, bring my double points today, and that blue sky pattern, because we all know i need to cast on for another sweater!
